Sunday Flight

On Sunday evening, Zachary and I went for a dinner flight with our friends Kate and Jim. Kate has had her pilot license for around 10 years now and ashamedly I never went on a flight with her. Well yesterday we changed that. It was the second time I have ever flown, the first time was a ride in a Trimotor. Zachary has flown a few times, from airlines to puddle jumpers. We met her at the Clintonville Airport and helped move the Cessna 172 from the hanger and watched Kate fuel and do a pre-flight check.
After we took off, Zachary and I had our eyes glued to the windows, watching the great sights. We picked up Jim at the Appleton airport and flew to the Sheboygan airport to the Final Approach restaurant, a restaurant right on the airport. After a delicious meal, we flew back to Appleton and then Clintonville, in the night sky. It was so neat to see the night lights. I wish we took more pictures, but our regular camera is MIA and we just have our digital video camera right now and doesn't always take the best snapshots. We did take a lot of video and we might post up a clip soon of some of the scenery, as soon as we get a chance to process it.
